How do updates work for the BMW navigation for cars that don't use a DVD?

How does it work for a 2018 BMW 430i convertible?

Do I still have the purchase them every year or is it included? Also, will the North America Next 2019 work on my car?

Update files are contained on USB Memory stick, plug into USB port in center console

Only way I've ever done my Nav updates - didn't even know they had a DVD version...

If you buy update from BMW you will also need to purchase the license key. Vin Coded FSC Code required

You can buy as a combo deal with USB stick+Code for $116, or if you already have an FSC code the memory stick alone is $41

The 1 time FSC code will allow for a single update. The 2 year FSC code will be valid for the next 24 months and would only require a new USB media stick should a new update be released in that time frame. To install, plug the USB Media stick into the vehicle and input the FSC code. All MY16+ (Start of production: 7/2015+) vehicles come with a 3-year FSC code activation from the factory. (would only require the USB Media Stick only option).

I have an Ď18 430. Next didnít work. I needed the evo update. I didnít have to get an fsc code.
I updated mine to 2018-4. Now 2019-x is out. I will wait for 2020 before I spend anymore on maps. I mainly use my phone anyway.
